Out of curiosity, does "it" often breakdown?

In my experience, yes. But isn't that generally a prerequisite for most kick-ass rides?


True. :lol: If a few breakdowns here and there are the tradeoff for such an awesome cycle, I'll take it.

Oh and has it been mentioned here that the tram operator on the back of the train and the roof over the front car are now gone?

It has not, and that kinda blows.

Interesting that Morey's blames the delay on the custom nature of the ride, while it actually is a regular off-the-shelf model, or are they talking about the ride being constructed on the pier / beach / close to the sea? Hope they get the ride open soon though!

The Moreys have confirmed it is not an off the shelf model.

Quick questions:

1. How good has Fly - The Great Nor'Easter been since its extensive retracking/new trains?

2. Is Sea Serpent as bumpy as any other Boomerang? (considering it was the first Boomerang in the US)

^ Fly- the Great Nor'Easter is quite smooth. It's not quite as smooth as a B&M invert, but with those restraints, you get zero headbanging and can appreciate the layout.

Sea Serpent was one of the smoothest boomerangs I've ridden.

Nor'easter is ridiculously smooth. Bill and I rode it in July and both got off gushing about how mindbogglingly smooth and fun it is. I'm not shitting you. Sea Serpent is good, great view from the first lift/drop, fairly good and smooth for a boomerang. I don't ride it as much as its the only big coaster on the central pier and it does get lines on weekend evenings, and a shuttle so the line crawls. If its during the day its not too bad usually.
